2019 Willow Wood Track & Field
Tryouts for the 2019 Willow Wood Track & Field Team will be held in the spring, date TBD. All athletes are required to have an athletic physical on file in order to tryout.
Information About Track Meets
Expectations: All athletes are expected to represent Willow Wood Junior High with integrity and we expect a high level of personal responsibility from all athletes. They must be on their best behavior, be responsible not to miss their events, and demonstrate good sportsmanship. If an athlete fails to meet these expectation, they will not be allowed to attend future track meets.
Transportation: Athletes competing in a track meet will be transported by school bus to to all meets. Athletes may leave a track meet directly with their parents once the parent/guardian has signed them out with their coach. Athletes not signed out by their parents will be transported back to Willow Wood at the conclusion of the meet and will be picked up there. (If the track meet takes place at a TISD facility, we may require all athletes to be picked up directly from the meet.)
Uniforms/Equipment: All athletes competing in a meet will be issued track uniforms and track sweats; it is the responsibility of the athlete to keep up with their uniforms and sweats for the duration of the track season and provide for their laundering. Athletes will be charged for any uniforms/sweats damaged or missing at the culmination of the season. All specialized equipment (batons, discus, shot-puts, poles, etc.) will be provided by WWJH. Athletes may purchase a pair of track spikes for running/jumping events if they wish but they are not required.
Additional Information: Students may wish to pack a snack to eat after the school day is over and prior to their event as track meets can stretch out past dinner time. They may also choose to bring money to use at any concession stands available (most meets will have an operating concession stand.)
In the event of bad weather, we will update the website and let students/parents know of any cancellations as soon as possible. Meets may be rescheduled, but due to the facilities being used for high school events as well it is not always possible.
